The House of Lords section is misleading. It makes it sound like the Blair government introduced the idea of non-hereditary members, when in fact nearly all members created since the 1950s have been non-hereditary. Also, the Blair reforms were part of Labour's election manifesto and I don't think it's accurate to say that they were "an attempt to stifle opposition to Blair". The Lords remains about as powerful as it was before, i.e. not very.

The BNP are not a republican party. The only republican party in this country are the Greens, although Clegg has sympathies. I'm removing that line.

The SNP and Plaid Cymru are hard to read now as it's yellow-on-white. I'd change it myself, but I'm not sure what to.
